- Ben Nicholson was one of the most radical British artists of the twentieth century and the leader of the modern movement in Britain between the wars. He was born into a firmly established artistic family: his father was Sir William Nicholson, one of the English Impressionists; his mother was also a painter, and the sister of the acclaimed painter James Pryde. His first wife was the painter Winifred Nicholson, whilst his second wife was the sculptor Barbara Hepworth. He was awarded numerous prizes and distinctions: in 1952 he won the Carnegie Prize at the International Exhibition in Pittsburgh; in 1956 he won the First Guggenheim International Prize; in 1957 he won the International Painting Prize at the So Paulo Biennale; and in 1958 he won a major prize at the Venice Biennale.
